This weekend, my kids and I are going try to catch a glimpse of Eric at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival, which is showcasing Eric's artwork on promotional posters and other items. Who knows whether we'll be successful in seeing him since we'll be among the throng of more than 100,000 that's likely to turn out for the bookfest.
In any event, we'll check out some of our favorite authors, browse some of the book stacks and enjoy some live entertainment on the Children's Stage. I'll report back Monday on our finds.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in Eric's work, do check out Eric's personal blog for a sampling of personal photos and a peek behind the scenes of the famous illustrator at work. Or head over to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art for tons of inspiration and ideas for art activities to do with children.
